Taste and See: Come and See

Mystery of the Light, Preaching the Kingdom

At Sunday’s Mass – the Exaltation of the Holy Cross – the communion antiphon was the following

When I am lifted up from the earth,
I will draw everyone to myself, says the Lord.
Jn 12: 32

It is a prophesy that anticipates change and conversion.

But there is a gentleness to the  promised gathering that the Church (and the churches) have often betrayed in the various processes and strategies of evangelisation.

  •  What about your local Church community draws people?
  • What might turn them away?
  • How might the best practice be strengthened and the worst redressed?
